abstract

  • We report a case of littoral cell angioma (LCA) diagnosed by percutaneous core needle biopsy during the workup of a patient with multiple splenic lesions. Splenectomy was not performed. The patient has remained asymptomatic during 4 years of follow-up. Our findings raise interesting questions about the feasibility of core needle biopsy for the diagnosis of LCA. Clinicians should be aware of LCA as an unusual benign entity in the differential diagnosis of multiple splenic lesions.
